Implementing the Seal of Biliteracy Assessment
Free webinar for ACL members
Presenter: Brian Compton
Level: middle through high school
Track: Teacher Preparation and Professional Development
Description: State and Global seals of biliteracy are great ways for students to show high levels of proficiency in English and a second language. They are markers for colleges and employers to know what students are able to do in their given languages. There are still a number of questions about how students can earn these seals, what assessments are available, and how to implement a program for assessment and awarding seals school-wide. My presentation will draw upon my experiences setting up a program at my school to help teachers determine the best assessments and how to convince world language departments and administrators of the benefits of awarding these seals to students.
